Can Garcia scratch his way into the British or U.S. Open?

In order to be eligible for the BRITISH (not U.S.) OPEN, Sergio Garcia must go through the qualification process because his world ranking is currently not high enough for automatic entry.  That qualification round was to take place today.

Garcia withdrew from his qualifier this morning due to an infected fingernail.

“Unfortunately had to wd from qualifier this morning because of an infected fingernail in my left hand. Couldn’t hold the club comfortably even after 5 holes. Hopefully I’ll be fine for Thursday at the (Byron) Nelson! Sorry guys.” ~Sergio Garcia via Twitter

A fingernail can derail a world class player’s chances to play in the Open. Speechless.
